Voice navigation is randomly changing language/accent. It's quite disruptive. 0 Recommended Answers 2 Replies 1 Upvote

Google Maps navigation has worked flawlessly, for me, for several years that I've used it. Lately, however ... It started about a month ago when the usual/standard American female voice saying something like "In 200 meters turn left" would be immediately randomly followed by an Indian male voice (speaking English but heavy accent) repeating "In 200 meters turn left." The first time it happened I thought some Indian guy had got in the back of my car at the last stop .. I literally looked behind me to see if someone was in the car.
Now, in addition to random Indian guy (although he is much less frequent), the standard American female voice has started to randomly switch languages and accents. She never totally switches language, though, but combines English with other languages, such as "In six (pronounced w/ French accent - 'cease') hundred meters turn left" or randomly Spanish "In 200 meters your 'destinacion' will be on the right."
Has anyone else experienced this bizarre whatever it is?
